Each one is made by the women of Vikapu Bomba, which focuses on creating sustainable income for talented rural Tanzanian women. For many women living in the lush southern highlands, life centers around subsistence farming, cooking, cleaning and caring for children. Women can weave baskets between their other duties, working daily to earn money to pay school fees, buy food, procure farming supplies and contribute to savings.
Milulu grass reeds are harvested carefully from the marsh without removing the entire plant, dried in the sun, dyed with natural dyes, and split for weaving.
